Solar Gard® architectural solar control window films are designed for home or commercial buildings where maintaining sunlight while reducing solar heat gain is important. Window films are thin, multi-layered sheets of optically clear film that are retrofitted to the inside surface of the glass. Solar Gard films are sputter-coated with an assortment of durable metals. The varying combinations and thickness of metals are what give the window film its specific solar performance, properties, and color.
